Are they in or aren’t they? Today, fair reader, I am wearing a romper. I found it at Target, for around 15 dollars and its probably the most comfortable thing I’ve ever worn. Being from the south, the region were rompers rule, I believe that you shouldn’t spend more the $25 dollars for a romper. Their purpose is efficiency. They combine the tank and the shorts, so why would you pay more than that when the alternative is to buy both the tank/short combo separately. I mean that’s just good economics. If you are going to compete fiscally, than the romper should be cheaper. I mean, the romper’s distant cousin is the overalls, and god only knows that a good pair of overalls should never break the bank. Overalls are for the common man. Likewise, the romper is for the common man’s girlfriend on the side. The romper is for the common ho.
And THAT, ladies and gentleman, is my fashion aim for today. I am donning a light denim romper with red bra straps that are visible (a la Daisy Duke) underneath. I’ll be honest, I was a little romper-shy this morning. My boyfriend lovingly sang “Romp Around” to the tune of that 90’s classic “Jump Around” on our morning walk for coffee. Maybe the world wasn’t ready for a Devin romp. For this reason, I wore a light jacket whilst I built up my confidence.
BUT NOW it is 3:49 pm in the afternoon, and I am feeling daring. I’m ready to romp. Here it is, world. My romper.
The number of times I’ve used to word “romper” in this post is incredible.
Once while visiting Detroit, I stumbled upon a handsomely mustached gentleman in a Miami University hockey jersey. He was tall, cocksure and identified himself as your brother. Did he learn both his confidence and sure-handed "pop and lock" dance techni
que from me?
There is a word limit to your questions, good sir. Your fluidity with language reminds me of a very close relative of mine, but to answer your question, I have no idea what you’re talking about. MY brother does occasionally sport the gentleman’s staché, but he isn’t at all what you described! MY brother is tall, yes, but while in Detroit, he was thrown out of numerous casinos for throwing nickels at the cocktail waitresses. This is AFTER he won over $2,000 at the Black Jack table. They say that he claimed he was trying to “make it hail on dem hos”
Are you excited for Deathly Hallows? Are you and all the StarKid crew going to the premiere together?
Personally, I don’t really like the Harry Potter movies. (I know, I know..) Its nothing to do with the acting or directing or anything. I just really love the books so much more. The story is so much different in my head.
I don’t know about the others. We’re all so spread out right now that I’m sure we can’t all get together just to see it. I don’t even know when it comes out. When does it come out?
Somebody has created a FB for me without me knowing or my consent. Here’s how I found out.
Yesterday my brother asked if I had created a separate Facebook account for the Starkid fans. When I said no he said that I must of because there is someone out there who has used my picture and my some of my stats and created another Devin. Now, don’t get me wrong, I usually love talking to people I don’t know out there in virtualpc world, but making a FB person for me is a little weird. I would feel completely different if it were a page, but a person suggests that someone is using my identity.I don’t know, am I overreacting? I would love some feedback on how to handle this.
I think what I am most offended by this is the list of musical interests in this faux FB person. They listed Paramore, Daughtry, Lady Antebellum, and Britney Spears as my favorite bands. …
That’s just rude.
They also listed texting, bride kidnapping, and staring into space, and paintball as my favorite activities.
Again. So false. So Rude.
They listed New Moon as my fav movie. AND Charmed and Glee as my favorite TV shows.
What's your favorite thing about UM?
(Oh, and are Insomnia Cookies really as amazing as everyone tells me?)
Hmm, this is hard.
I guess I really love the town of Ann Arbor. There is always something to do or see and the people are all educated and artsy. I love that there are gourmet coffee shops and frozen yogurt stands and vintage stores. I like the history and how University traditions reside on almost every street corner. I dig the liberal feel of the town and how the student is kind of king in this town.
Insomnia Cookies are good. Manhattans are better ;).
My brother's been at Cambridge for a year now and he hasn't seen Stephen Hawking, but my friend's brother's seen Lily Cole...also if you can find it, there's a Stephen Hawking shower that was built for him. It has a bench! YOU SHOULD USE IT.
GOOD LUCK AT CAMBRIDGE! I wish people at my college were as cool as you and the rest of the Starkid gang. :( :D
And don’t get down on your college. A bunch of us were discussing this backstage during AVPS, and we feel that anybody can do what we do. If anything, Starkidpotter is just a testament of how it is possible to just get together with your friends and create something that you think is funny/important. For us, it was making fun of our favorite childhood books. My college is not the source of what we do and who we are. My college is just where I happen to be. Our shows are the product of a group of close friends who are pooling their creative efforts and having a shit ton of fun.
I guess what I am trying to say, is you can do it too.
And, thanks again! I’m a little bit nervous about studying at Cambridge. I really hope I see Steven Hawking, though! lol.
I couldn’t see past the first page of my dash. I hope its better now.
Stream of consciousness update-
I have a headache. My Dad has bronchitis so I should stop complaining. This coffee shop plays sweet music. Summer classes suck. Hopefully I can catch up with all this work I have to do. This girl sitting next me has a cool tattoo of a feather on her ankle. I wonder what she would do if she knew that I was blogging about her right now. Is this creepy? Probably. I’ll stop. Jason is coming to pick me so that we can go to the gym. Couples who work out together stay together. Sure, why not. Still have a headache. That girl also has painted each one of her toenails a different color. That little hipster biatch. She looks like a grad student. Now she is talking on the phone with what seems to be a new sub-letter. Speaking of sub-letter, our sub-letter, John, was supposed to stay at home and greet the cable guy today. That didn’t happen. Know what else didn’t happen? Taking the recycling out this week. K whatever. I know my roommate is laughing at this. She often reads my blog even though she doesn’t have a tumblr herself. Stalker. Thats right…I’m talking about YOU KACIE.
you're approached by a film studio to remake one movie from your childhood. you have COMPLETE control over EVERYTHING. which movie do you pick? who's directing, starring in and doing the music for this masterpiece?
Ugh, that is so hard! I would say The Princess Bride, but the original characters are just too good to be recreated.
OK. This may sound stupid. But does anyone remember the movie Rock a Doodle? Here’s the link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0102802/
Now, I don’t know how I could remake this kids classic, but I LOVED this film when I was a kid. My best friend had it when I was little, and we would always watch it at sleepovers.
Oh! Or I would remake Troop Beverly Hills. I was a girl scout until the latter days of high school (I know. I’m a nerd, I suck..but I can save your ass in the wilderness!) and I loved this movie too. I would cast myself as Phyllis Nefler, of course.
Another great movie from my childhood is We’re Back! A Dinosaur’s Story. Hell yeah, that movie rocked. John Patrick Shanley actually wrote that screenplay, and when he came here to speak to my film class earlier this year, all of us were like “yeah, yeah, yeah, Doubt was great…but We’re Back was INCREDIBLE.”
